I cover biomedical research and topics related to parent and child health.

I became a science writer in 2013 after completing my PhD in cell biology at the University of Pittsburgh. I’ve written for the Boston Globe, the New York Times for Kids, Slate, Smithsonian, Undark, Wirecutter, and more. Learn more.
